"Go And Say Goodbye" as written by and Stephen Stills....
You ask me to read this letter
That you wrote the night before
And you really should know better
'Cause she's worth a whole lot more

Brother, you know you can't run away and hide
Is it you don't want to see her cries, is that why
You won't go and say goodbye

Then you said the fault was yours
And when you really were to blame
'Cause as if to close the doors
And to hide away in shame

Brother, you know you can't run away and hide
Is it you don't want to see her cries, is that why
You won't go and say goodbye

Yes, and why, tell me why
Can't you see that it's not right
It's a lie, it's a lie
Don't hide your sorrow in the night

Brother, you know you can't run away and hide
Is it you don't want to see her cries, is that why
You won't go and say goodbye

And you know the pain is double
But for her it's even worse
You must face her with the trouble
'Though it's hurting like a curse

Brother, you know you can't run away and hide
Is it you don't want to see her cries, is that why
You won't go and say
Brother, you know you can't run away and hide
Is it you don't want to see her cries, is that why
You won't go and say
Gonna go and say, gonna go and say goodbye

    General CommentCome on I can't believe no one has commented this amazing song! I've been playing it nonstop on my guitar since I learned it as well. There's no hidden meaning really behind these lyrics, a guy who doesnt want to be with his girlfriend anymore, but does not want to break up with her to her face, so he writes a letter and wants his friend to give it to her on his behalf. Nowadays, it's too easy to dump people, I know this well, having been dumped by a girl from a 3 year relationship through a cell phone text.

    Is it you don't want to see her cry, is that why you won't go and say goodbye?

    General CommentThis song has always been one of my favorites by Steve Stills because of its simplicity and easy feel. I've always been curious, though, just who inspired this song in him. There was lots going on in those with this group of talented musicians. Great tune.
